well another GREAT vacation at what has become "our" cabin, lol, we had so much fun, if anyone is looking for a nice relaxing vacation call julie & make your reservations, you will not be disappointed, everything you need is here!!! thanks julie we'll be calling soon to make plans for next summer!!
The home on Bear Lake was just as the listing describes. There was plenty of room for relaxation in the home, the kitchen was fully stocked, and (with 7 people) the 2 bathrooms were a plus! The upper deck was the "hang out" when we needed some shade. The beach was wonderful for catching some sun, then dipping in the super clean lake to cool off. My brother and sister-in-law brought their 20ft. boat and it was able to be launched near by, then docked at the houses 40ft. dock. If you have a motor boat you should definitely bring it, if not, their row boats are right on the beach!
All in all, this was a great experience! The home was clean, the owner was very friendly & helpful and I would absolutely recommend this to friends and relatives!
Thanks again to the owner:-)
what a beautiful place to vacation, the cabin was just great, very clean & cozy, it felt like home. i've been going to bear lake my whole life & the lake has never changed, clean, clear & great swimming, my grandkids only got out of it to eat & sleep, then it was a struggle to get them out!! we hated to leave but we will be back next year...thank you for sharing your beautiful cabin. the suszka family
